The Toronto Film Festival is kicking things off in a big way!

On Friday's edition of Live From E!, Arlene Santana, Ken Baker and Melanie Bromley discussed the big movies and stars arriving in Canada for the annual event.

Our very own Marc Malkin called in from the festival and shared the films everyone is talking about.

James Gandolfini's final movie, Enough Said, is gaining plenty of buzz, while Brad Pitt is gearing up for the screening of his latest project 12 Years a Slave. Fans are critics alike are also looking forward to appearances by Hugh Jackman, Julia Roberts and a newly engaged Scarlett Johansson.

Diana, Naomi Watts

Also on today's show, the roundtable shared the harsh reviews coming out of London for Naomi Watts' new film Diana.

According to many critics, the actress makes a valiant effort but ultimately misses the mark in her portrayal of Princess Diana.

One critic went so far to say watching the film felt "stilted, overly mannered and bereft of anything human." We will have to see for ourselves when the film hits the States in November.

Alec Baldwin, Piers Morgan Tonight


Finally, the panel shared their thoughts on Alec Baldwin's new show coming to MSNBC. The former 30 Rock star is more than excited for the new gig.

"After two seasons of my WNYC podcast, I've developed a fondness for hosting a show that involved talking with smart, talented, and engaging people in every imaginable field," Baldwin said in a statement. "I'm grateful to MSNBC for helping me bring a similar show to television."

The show will air Friday nights beginning in October.
